Apple iPhone 6 Plus is a brilliantly built iOS device released back in the year 2014, packing a great 1.4 gigahertz Dual-Core CPU, a large 5.5 inches multi touch capacitive screen, an 8 mega-pixels back side camera and a 1.2 megapixels front facing camera.

Apple made the iPhone 6 Plus in 3 color options, black, gray and gold. While the iPhone 6 Plus only has 6.22 inches long and 3.06 inches wide, it still manages to hold a 5.5 inches display. This phone is just 0.28 inches thick, taking it to the thinnest cellphone's category. Talking about its design materials, this phone is majorly manufactured with Aluminium, giving this cellphone a premium finish. The iPhone 6 Plus is much lighter than what you expect from a phone of this size.

Apple ships the Apple iPhone 6 Plus with a high performance Dual-Core CPU ticking at 1.4 gigahertz, packed into the Apple A8 chip with only 1 GB of RAM memory which is a little bit disappointing for such a great device. To collaborate with graphic rendering, the iPhone 6 Plus also counts with a 450 MHz PowerVR GX6450 GPU. A great point of the iPhone 6 Plus is its big 128 GB internal storage memory and whereas it doesn't include an SD memory card expansion slot, it it is more than enough to store hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without having to worry about filling it.

The iPhone 6 Plus has two cameras, an 8 megapixels back camera and a 1.2 MP front facing camera. the iPhone 6 Plus's back camera lens has an aperture of f/2.2 so it can shoot clear photographs even in low lighting situations. This cellphone also captures Full HD 1920x1080 videos at 60 fps, and slow-motion videos in 1280x720 (HD) at 240 frames per second. The camera also has lots of useful characteristics like auto-focus, flash, optical image stabilization, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, time lapse video, HDR mode and geo tagging.

The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is equipped with an amazing 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) 5.5" display, providing this phone with a great image quality. This display uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, with a brightness of 500 candela/m2 and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This cellphone counts with wifi connectivity (which it can share with other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), 4G (LTE) high performance data connection and 3G fast internet connection, over HSPA, HSUPA, UMTS, EV-DO A, EV-DO B and EDGE technologies. This phone uses a Nano SIM card to connect to GSM networks and it can use both CDMA and GSM networks.

This cellphone also features plenty of interesting characteristics like Fingerprint Identification, NFC, Bluetooth (4.0) and GPS (Global Positioning System), and lots of sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer, Gyroscope, Barometer and Compass.

This phone features an inmense 2915 mAh Li-Ion non-replaceable battery providing this phone a quite long battery duration. According to Apple, this cellphone has an estimated talk time of 24 hs and a stand by time of 384 hours. An issue to take into account is that the Apple iPhone 6 Plus's battery is non-removable so you can't throw it away and buy a new one when it starts to get older, while having 2915 mAh you will probably buy a new device before that happens.

The Apple iPhone 6 Plus is priced around $ 559, which is not very cheap for comparing with other similar phones. No matter whether you want a phone for work, want a gamer phone, you love taking photographs or are looking for a social cellphone, this cellphone is probably the right one for you. Apple packs this device with Lightning to USB Cable, Documentation, Apple EarPods with Remote and Mic and USB Power Adapter.
